DirecTV's HD department told me tonight that they have issued a message in the last day or so that will correct HDMI issues via a firmware upgrade. A simple reboot after initializing the message is all that is required. I have an HR10-250 that is about a year old and won't communicate with my new Pioneer 50" plasma so I've persistently called DirecTV asking for help. They tell me that this upgrade should fix the problem. I'm out of town for the week. Has anyone seen this message? Am I prematurely optimistic or is that even possible?
